We had a short break in Wellington New Zealand (would thoroughly recommend this exciting and vibrant city) Our hotel was on funky Cuba Street and just down the street was Cin Cin. The food was amazing, the seafood linguine was truly exceptional. It was a Saturday night and we had booked a week earlier having read really good reviews. A good job we did as it was packed. There is a hidden room which was a lovely surprise, and the staff were really helpful and the service excellent, we really appreciated the on the house bread to mop up the plates and we didn't even ask for it! Don't miss out on this dining experience extravaganza!!

Amazing food, so tasty and great portion size. Lots of menu choice, really nice environment and we didn’t have to wait long for a table. Friendly staff, would recommend to any lovers of Italian food!

Very friendly feel to the restaurant with super friendly staff who seem to enjoy working there ( always a plus!)
The food was a little expensive but also very nice. Fresh and packed full of flavour it was a good meal out with friends. The carbonara was delicious as was the ravioli and linguine, couldn’t fault any of it and would definitely go again!

My husband and I had been meaning to try Cin Cin for quite a while as we had heard good reviews. We went on a Saturday night, quite early, hadn't booked, but were seated straight away. The staff are pleasant and the decor is pretty, but unfortunately the atmosphere is a bit lacking. The toilets could do with an upgrade and maybe just some nice hand wash,etc. This would make a difference as its what you expect in a good Wellington restaurant. We had olives and risotto balls to start, these were lovely and a nice size to share. We had fish of the day and pork and fennel pasta shells for our mains. They were nice enough, but nothing exceptional. We were looking forward to chocolate torte for dessert, but they had run out at 6 pm! I wouldn't rush back here as its not special enough for the prices they charge and have had much better Italian food elsewhere in the city.

Found this place on TripAdvisor and was not let down. Had a really great meal. The zucchini flowers were a superb starter. My one year old absolutely loved the spaghetti with meatballs (they were on the children’s menu and of a much higher standard than you might expect for a restaurant children’s meal). The snapper was outstanding, as was my wife’s seafood linguine. I’d recommend the house beer but I’d also recommend trying the NZ made Italian style white wine.

Friendly and accommodating service too!

Would come back again if I didn’t live in London.
